10 tips for coming up with town names
- Try combining syllables from existing town names to create something new and unexpected.
- Draw on your local geography or culture, look at a map, or research the history of the area to spark ideas.
- Look at other sources of inspiration – books, art, fantasy, music etc.
- Play with puns, rhymes and alliteration to make something unique and memorable.
- Incorporate language or translations to give it a unique flavour.
- Mix and match words from multiple languages, cultures, and time periods.
- Think of what the town's purpose is – is it a farming community? Mining colony? Logging camp?
- Try to be creative and think outside the box – don't settle for generic and overused names.
- See if there's an existing name in your language or history that can be adapted to fit the town.
- Brainstorm by yourself and with other people, to generate as many ideas as possible.
